Prevention and staying home when you are ill are effective measures in the prevention of the spread of this disease and all communicable diseases . The local physicians recommend that if you or a family member has Influenza A or are symptomatic, that you and your household members stay home for at least 7 days and fever free without fever reducing medicine for at least 24 hours. If you become ill, you have been contagious 24 hours before you began to feel sick. Though this recommendation is aggressive and difficult on families and our school districts, we have seen smaller numbers of influenza cases than the surrounding counties. The goal is to limit the spread of the disease until we can offer vaccine to all of the priority groups.
